Aurinko the Cheetah is a medic that serves the Light Clan of Celeritas.
A slender cheetah who stands a little over three feet tall, Aurinko has a fairly short snout with a triangular nose, fairly small and rounded ears, and a long, slender tail.
His fur is primarily pale silver in color, with a white muzzle, chest and stomach, as well as taupe gray spots decorating most of her body, taupe gray ears, and two taupe gray tear-lines on her face. She has no hair on her head, instead having a tuft of longer fur, and her eyes are Paris green in color.
She first appears during Llachar's flashback, where he recalls the injured stranger that stumbled across Hope Tower. Llachar had brought the stranger to Aurinko so that she could heal him. Yet the stranger, who was really Toxic in disguise, rallied a large number of Trolls to attack Hope Tower later that night, with the invasion resulting in the death of Lady Ilia Lightbringer.
Aurinko was seen after the Trolls were successfully driven away, locked in a depressive slump, mainly because she had helped the person who caused Ilia's death.
Being a medic, Aurinko has a far more defensive and utility-based fighting style than the soldiers and mages do. Apart from being able to heal and buff her allies, she can also debuff her enemies, and even strip them of their powers to some degree.
She isn't terribly sturdy, nor can she hit that hard. However, her Solaramantic abilities are well-developed, and she also is very agile, since she is a cheetah; she can easily dodge most foes, which is helpful for her.
Aurinko is relatively resistant to the Element of Light. She is very fast, and can easily outpace most foes and evade their attacks with ease.
Aurinko is weak to the Element of Darkness. Her defenses aren't anything special, therefore she mostly relies on her agility to try and evade potentially devastating attacks. Her physical strength is also less than stellar, making her falter heavily in hand-to-hand combat.
Friends and Foes
- Dark Clan of Voidstar -
- Nihlic Clan of Nihlus -
- The Trolls - Unsurprisingly, Aurinko holds a hateful grudge against the Trolls.
Aurinko used to live up to the translation of her name; she was warm and cheery, and loved helping people. After Lady Ilia's death, however, she had become very withdrawn and quiet, as she felt partially responsible for the former leader's death. She still does her job without fail, however.
Her name is the Finnish word for "sun".
